Located in La Mure in the heart of the old town, the Maison Caral houses the Matheysin Museum since 1994. The museum of La Mure houses collections related to the Matheysine, the Beaumont and the Valbonnais. Archaeology (prehistory, Gallo-Roman and medieval periods) and the Wars of Religion (Siege of La Mure in 1580) precede the rooms of miners, farmers, glaziers and peddlers. These activities have made the reputation of this country of medium mountains between Grenoble and Gap. The last spaces deal with the regional sculptors and painters of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Since 2012, a large part of the museum displays the work of the abstract painter Claude Garanjoud (1926-2005), and the visit is punctuated by an exhibition on Olivier Messiaen (a Matheysin summer resident for over 50 years).
Each season, a new temporary exhibition is proposed to the public. Guided tours are organized on request for groups and classes (by appointment).
The museum organizes free "Open House" days in May ("Musées en fête") and in September ("Journées européennes du Patrimoine").
